Do not set it on a glass patio table, and don't use any container that might shatter. Use metal or possibly stoneware, not glass, wood, or plastic. Heet is primarily methanol methyl alcohol.
Try this project with other types of alcohol, such as ethanol, vodka, Everclear grain alcohol, or isopropyl alcohol rubbing alcohol. You might also try other common household metal salts for different flame colors. For example, try substituting rubbing alcohol for the Heet. The result will likely be a fire that alternates from orange to blue to green.
I recommend mixing at the lowest temperature it will be stored, or used at. And once it is saturated, filter out the remaining solids, then top up with a splash of extra methanol. Just to ensure it stays in solution. Burn it, just do it in a well ventilated space.
